Linda and I were at the summit of Clingmans Dome on Easter 2015. A group of Christian Chinese from Atlanta sang “Glory To God” in Chinese on this beautiful day. (so says the ranger))
Today was a clear day,but the ranger said,” The sky is battered by some kind of weather condition - rains and drizzles and nebulous fogs at least fifty percent of the time.”
Maybe a Sky Watch Friday post or maybe not. I always feel a little bad if I don’t get around to other great skywatch posts to comment.
